    For example, we have multiple bedrooms, bathrooms. In a situation where I want to control the lights, how would I tell Siri to turn off all the lights in a specific bedroom?

    I have an Apple TV and HomePod in my bedroom which both act as a hub, so when I say the command "Hey Siri turn on my lights" I'm assuming it would only turn on the lights that are in bedroom since thats what my HomePod and Apple TV are assigned to. But let's say I wanted to control lights in another bedroom, then how would I do that?

    In the Home app, you create and name the rooms, and you specify which rooms the devices are in. So you can say things like "turn on the master bedroom lights".

    First you need to give each bedroom it’s own specific name. Then when you ask Siri to turn off the lights you need to say, “Hey Siri, turn off the <specific bedroom name> lights.
